With the recent Notice to Industry from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) regarding the confirmed cases of the neurotropic strain of EHV-1 at Woodbine Racetrack. It is recommended by the Track Veterinarian that horses shipping from anywhere in Ontario (Racetracks or farms) will not be allowed on the grounds or to enter a race at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino or Century Mile Racetrack and Casino until June 17th, 2020.

Please check with the Community Tracks as to their protocols for out of province ship ins.

We are requesting that trainers and owners from all breeds to be diligent and self-report any horses travelling from Ontario, as a positive test of EHV-1 on the backstretch could very well shut down the year.
